“Never be ashamed of a scar, it simply means you were stronger than whatever tried to hurt you.”
If you look, you’ll find an ample supply of quotes and platitudes about scars and how they are a reminder of strength, how they tell your story. But the truth is that sometimes, you don’t want your story on display for the general public to see. That’s not necessarily being ashamed, just desiring a modicum of privacy.
When Scarring Interferes with Everyday Life
Scars are tricky things physically and psychologically. They can limit the movement of your skin and muscles, pulling and causing greater disfigurement than when the area is at rest. Not only that, but they need rest and full healing before you can even begin to think about revising them. You have to learn for nine to twelve months or more how to move with the restriction, the pull. But even though you’ve become acclimated to it, you don’t have to like it!
Getting Scar Reduction Surgery
Call our Atlanta office for a consultation appointment. Kalos can help whether the scar is from an accident in the kitchen, trauma, abuse, or even a poor surgical recovery. Treatments like Dermabrasion, W-Plasty, Z-Plasty, and Laser Therapy, among others are able to lessen or even completely remove the damaged tissue and marks.
Your scars do tell a story. And whether you keep the scars as a reminder, or have them revised, that story will always be a part of who you are. But you should be able to decide when you want to tell it. Scar revision surgery can give that freedom and privacy back to you. Call us today!
